I've started a game as Haiti to better understand the industrial and economic aspect of the game, free from wars and other great power meddlings.
My first act as El Presidente was to build a cement factory on my only island and put my NF to craftsman... soon enough I had 1000 unemployed so I built my first factory - cement - and it started churning out a poor, though adequete profit of £9-10 per day. Shortly after, I built a glass factory too, just to add some extra industry.
Tech wise, I've been researching things to increase my tabacco farm sizes and outputs, plus making my factories more efficient. Worked well so far, I'm making a few extra pounds.
Now my question is where to go from here? Militarily, I have my eyes on stealing Cuba from Spain but that's a long way away yet. Should I wait for my factories to get more workers? Change my NF? Or build more factories?
